I came out this morning to find some new fresh foot prints in the snow around my house. Wouldn't ya know it. Some fuckity fuckers, decided to steal my stella in 4" of snow. Well they didn't get more than 50' as they couldn't get it started. They did bother to chisel out the ignition thou... good thing the gas was run dry out of the carb...

Brainiacs I must say, too bad they didn't break into the house where I could ventilate their headpan.

Life's a bitch, they steal your scooter, then you die.

That seriously blows Dave. Glad to offer help in fixing any damage. Hmmmm, I think I could cram ONE MORE scoot into my garage....

I am going to menards to get a better door to keep the fuckity fuckers outa my stuff. They popped the overhead door. I guess it only takes a couple good pulls and they open right up. So I am going to bolt the overhead door and I am going to install a new enterance door with a dead bolt.

Ya those people thjat do these kinda things suck. I mean do they know that you get heckeled riding a scooter?

Dave, sorry to hear about your near-loss and violation. I must have been hit last night too here in Uptown! At least the garage door latch was popped open and the door up about 1'. I couldn't see that anything was taken but they obviously saw the scoots. Maybe they were coming back with the truck, I don't know, probably just kids in my case. Both our cars were broken into as well. I'm on alert now.

Anyway, you are right, those flimsy garage door latches are less than worthless. I added a huge hasp and new padlock today. If they really want in, though, they will be in. I'm open to suggestion, but for now I'm blaming this local crime increase on the State of the Nation.

Dogs with guns is just asking for trouble. I had a beagle that loved his .357 so much it caused alot of friction with the neighbors and theair missing cats. Just let them play with a stick and keep it simple.

That sucks Mojo. Don't these people know that you can get contact frost bite? Well pleas ebe careful as these creeps know what you got in your garage and they might be back...Ya you really can't stop them if they really wanna get in, but maybe you can make it hard enough that they will look elsewhere....

Good luck!
Dave

Will do! Let me know when that shock show up done there at the 'ville so I can pay ya for it. I would like you to install it, but I am unsure when I can get the scoot up and running again. I am going to college at night so it eats up most of my free time. Hopefully it will be up and running next weekend....

Sorry to read this.

FWIW, "they" say that those motion sensing flood lights are the best deterent for this kind of break in. (Assuming your locks are already up to snuff.) I think they're annoying as hell, but our neighborhood SAFE officer says they really make a difference. Some of my neighbors really need to read the fucking manual, paying close attention to the part where they discuss adjusting the sensitivity.
